The quiet, relaxing ambience allowed our table to easily hear each other and enjoy conversation, much unlike the chain restaurants and wine bars.

We thought we were going to a Mexican restaurant. When we arrived for lunch and started looking at the menu, most of the entrees were not "Mexican" but were Cuban, Central or South American dishes. Not that we're complaining! We tried the Ropa Vieja and Cuban pork. Contrary to one of the other reviewers statements, the Cuban pork was shredded,... More

We have eaten at Antigua several times over the past year and we keep going back. I try a new entrée every time I go and have never had a bad meal there. The entrees are refreshingly different than the standard Mexican faire, featuring sauces and spices with an exotic flair. I recommend the Ropa Vieja, a Cuban dish with... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Milwaukee area. The lomo saltado is the best we've ever had, including Chef Paz and a restaurant featured on Food Network in Chicago that I can't recall the name of. We try to order new things, and we have without disappointment, but that is the star dish. The one thing that... More

If you are looking for some Latin food that is not your typical Mexican restaurant, this is it. Eight of us went here for lunch and all really liked their meals. The Cubano sandwich was excellent. Members of our group tried enchilada's, empanada's, salads and more. Nice atmosphere, clean, not very big though.

I could have had a bowl of the garlic spread that they served. I ordered the mole and relished every bit of it. I shall return.

Atmosphere is pleasant. The furnishings were comfortable and the decor is up-to-date. The service was good. Waiter was attentive and helpful. Excellent food. The luncheon menu is reasonably priced and the unlisted special of the day was Chicken with mole . . .just what I wanted. It was well-done. Empanadas were tasty as was the guac. Finished off with a... More

It was a very pleasant late summer day, so my friend and I ate outside. It was a weekday and we were having a late lunch, so we were the only diners in the entire restaurant. She and I have both lived and traveled in Latin America, so we were familiar with all the menu offerings. Both of us were... More

Antigua has really unique and delicious dishes. Their drinks are also fabulous! Try the sangrias! The one issue, timing. It took probably 7-10 minutes before our waiter came to our table, and we were the only guests in the place... once our server came over he was wonderful! It just takes a bit to get going, even though there's plenty... More

West Allis does not have the greatest reputation for elegance but Antigua skews the image. What a lovely place. Fresh flowers. Immaculate table. We did not take advantage of the 2/$25 dinner special (complete with margarita and dessert) as I don't eat meat, but we were delighted with three simple choices. We'd been bike riding in the heat and needed... More
